Immediately Filling-out Needed Patient Forms
You can rest assured that your first experience at the Pain & Posture Correction Clinic will be memorable considering that you’ll be welcomed by our receptionist. Next, you will be guided by our friendly employees to the New Patient Center so that you’ll be capable to fill out the necessary patient forms. This is important so that Dr. Prescott will have vital information about your health history.
The Consultation Period
Next is the appointment with Dr. Prescott; this is important for us to know your health needs and problems. This is the right time to talk about your problems and treatment choices with us. This is a very important step in assisting us to comprehend your pain, your problems as well as your anticipations. Because our physicians believe in treating you like their own family members, they’ll try to make the most of this visit by learning more about you.
X-Rays – Finding out the Root cause
Based on the issue that you’ve got, we may also utilize X-ray. This is because X-rays are one effective way of discovering the best treatment for your problems. Adding to that, it also gives us knowledge as to whether you are going through other issues, particularly in the spinal area. In fact, there are some cases in which our patients were capable to find out the issues for themselves by simply looking through their own X-rays.
Creating a Plan
Following the consultation and evaluation, Dr. Prescott will now give a detailed explanation of her diagnosis and answer you initial inquiries such as:
• How can chiropractic care help me?
• Do I have to see the chiropractor every day?
• What will be the cost of my treatment?
Following the review of your medical history and evaluation reports, we’ll be prepared to provide possible treatment plans. Aside from that, you might also be advised to see other providers as well, especially if your condition needs it.
The Strategies of Treating the Cause
Finally, you will start on your very first treatment. You can expect different treatment options, such as soft tissue massage, physical therapy, and spinal adjustments. Your treatment will be interactive, so that you’re able to express concerns about the various treatment styles at any time.
At Pain & Posture Correction Clinic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Irvine chiropractic office, but please call us at (949) 784-4507 if you have any questions!
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Lori Prescott has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Pain & Posture Correction Clinic, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient’s specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Irvine chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient’s unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient’s range of motion, while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Lori Prescott can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Irvine community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (949) 784-4507 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
